    Videotape testimony of Eva K., who was born in Wielún, Poland in 1925, one of eight children. She recalls her family's Hasidism; being injured during German invasion in 1939; hospitalization; living in Łódź with her parents and some siblings, then in the Warsaw ghetto; hiding in bunkers during round-ups; her father's and youngest sister's deportation; deportation with her mother and some siblings; separation from them all; slave labor in Majdanek; transfer to Auschwitz; dreaming of her parents; transfer to Weisswasser; slave labor in a munitions factory; liberation by Soviet troops on May 8, 1945; traveling to Warsaw, then Wielún, seeking surviving relatives but finding no one; emigration to Palestine via Austria; marriage to a survivor; and emigration with their three children to Switzerland in 1958, then to the United States in 1964. Ms. K. discusses never taking action to survive the camps, and her amazement that she did; being the sole survivor of her family; thinking only those who did not survive know the whole story; sharing her experiences with her children; and wanting her camp number on her tombstone so future generations will not forget.
